Softball Rules

Date/Site Changes

Regular season Softball games must be played on the scheduled date and at the listed venue to be considered action unless otherwise noted in the specific sports rules section or the inventory game page within the mobile application, web browser application, or printed media in the Borgata Race and Sports Book.

If a game has been suspended after the game has started, due to a weather delay or other deferral, and resumes within 36 hours after the original start time, all wagers will stand.  If a suspended game resumes more than 36 hours after the original start time, and the requirements for Minimum Length of Play have not been satisfied, all wagers will be cancelled except for those that have been unconditionally determined prior to the game’s suspension.

Minimum Length of Play

Pre-Game Wagers:

Unless otherwise stipulated in individual Softball sports wager rules, wagers on softball money lines are official after 5 innings of play. If the home team is leading, the game is official after 4 ½ innings. Thereafter, if a game is called or suspended for more than 36 hours, the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning, unless the home team scores to tie or take the lead in the bottom half of the inning, in which case the winner is determined by the score at the time the game is called.

For games scheduled to play a full 7 innings, game must go to 7 innings (6 ½ if the home team is ahead) to have action on run lines and totals.

In specified inning wagers, game must go full specified innings to be official, unless the home team is leading the bottom half of specified inning prior to completion of specified innings(s). For money line, totals, and run lines, game must go the full specified innings.

Extra Innings:

Unless otherwise stated, bets will be settled on the official result including any extra innings.

Live Wagers:

Game must go full scheduled length to have action on all markets:  7 innings (6 ½ if the home team is ahead) for 7 inning games. If the game is called before this time then all bets will be cancelled, except for those that have been unconditionally determined.
